in america. so does that bring us to the table? have we had such a toxic atmosphere, political toxic atmosphere we can't set and have a mature, intelligent decision and look at things and make sure we can protect the second amendment to the constitution, which i will as fervently as ever. i'm a proud member and will always be. but with that, i'm a responsible parent and grandparent. we need to look. how do we handle mental illness? this all knees to be talked about, in a culture of violence. how have we gotten where we are today? when you say the backlash, it's a shame in washington, i have been here two years as a u.s. senator. i have seen almost a guilt by association. people afraid to talk to other people to get a truly constructive dialog because they were afraid they would be tainted or targeted. now it's almost to the point that we're afraid to have an adult conversation. so guilt by conversation. has it gotten to that in washington? i hope not. >> governor perry said this about weapons. i want to play a little bit for you. >> in the state of texas, with our concealed handgun l
of dwighting america, let's come together for a change. we can. >> i want to talk a little more about the proposal that wayne la pierre made too put armed police officers in schools. it's gotten tepid support from republicans and that's probably an understatement. listen to john boraso yesterday. >> i think decisions about schools ought to be made at the local level. i would not want a national effort to say you have to do this at schools. i think local education decisions are best made at the local level. >> so even the -- people who should be the biggest supporters of this ideas to not only put armed police officers in schools, but to fund it republicans in congress, they are hands off, what does that tell you? >> lots of ways we can approach these issues and it really requires a multidisciplinary approach. what works in an environment in new york city isn't going to work in rural america, and there are 6,000 or 7,000 school districts in this country. one size doesn't fit all solutions are pretty clear. there are many things we can do, we can do now. let's not let those things that
the united states of america and, you know what, people need to be willing to take a vote even if it means they don't come back. >> yeah, well that's the problem, right? you and i talked about this before. we're in constant campaign mode. a compromise would require that both parties, all parties involved actually pay some price, that it costs somebody something. what is the specific problem, though, on the republican side in terms of the lack of compromise? again, i want to show you the same poll that we did on december 17th and 18th asking about whether the republican party is too extreme. 53% say the republican party is too extreme. excuse me, 53% say they're too extreme. we've done this poll before. in 2012 it was 36%. in 2004 it was 34%. back in 2000 only 33%. so what's happened? is the republican party too extreme and governed by its tea party members or is there some other problem that's making americans think that's the case? >> i think it's a combination of all factors. but here's the deal. republicans and the very conservative republicans that i serve with i think correctly point
